6 of us stayed at Ellen's cabin Aug 2021. Everything we needed was at the cabin, cable, internet, cookware, bedding, hot tub, firewood. towels, detergent to do laundry if you needed. Everything was extremely clean. The outdoor spaces are excellent, the view amazing, and the quiet was just what we needed. We will be back very soon, maybe a winter get away. , August 2021
